Trim Healthy Mama cooking day part two

http://komporbioenergi.com/?p=thesis-writer-in-lahore Freezer meals are one of the surest ways to save time in your busy schedule. I’m a teacher with two small children, one who is extremely busy with a number of activities. Time constraints make it easy to fall into the fast food trap.

One of the great things about the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook is that they include a “freezer to crockpot” note in all their crockpot recipes. This tells you how to easily prep your meals for the freezer so you can just take them out and pour them in the crock pot.

Random Things Thursday: Trim Healthy Mama breakfast casserole (s)

I have been following the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating for about two years and I’ve not only lost a lot of weight, but I feel better than I ever have. 


This recipe is in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook and it’s not only cheap and easy to make, it’s delicious!! It’s a great dish for THM newbies and skeptics, and kids and husbands both seem to love it!

You will need these ingredients:

8 eggs

6 cups of cheddar or colby jack cheese

1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup of golden flaxseed flour or THM Baking Blend 

1/4 stick of butter

1/2 pound of diced ham

1/2 tsp of onion powder

1/2 tsp of garlic powder

1/2 tsp of parsley

1/2 tsp of chives

salt and pepper

First, cook up your bacon and brown your sausage. 


Then, take those meats and throw them in your food processor. Chop them up good. 


Then, core and cut up a red bell pepper and add it to the food processor.


Next, beat the eggs and mix in the rest of the ingredients, but only half the cheese.


Pour the mixture into a greased 9×13 pan and top with the remaining cheese. 

Then, bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour. 

You can even freeze and thaw for later.


I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Planning a Trim Healthy cooking day

As you know, we are preparing for “back to school” in our house. One way that we’re doing this is planning and prepping meals.


To do so, I have planned and created four separate meal planning days: one for breakfast, one for lunches, one for dinners, and one for condiments/sauces and snacks. 

My family follows the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating, which is a sugar free plan. Natural sweeteners, such as stevia, are used, as are gluten free flours. 

Today I’d like to show you my breakfast planning day. I cooked for four hours and ended up with almost three weeks of breakfasts. 

Pictured below: breakfast burritos (S), waffle breakky sandwiches (S), chocolate waffles (S) and regular waffles (S). 

Pictured below: breakfast burritos with egg, cheese and sausage on low carb tortillas, and some with bacon, egg and cheese. Both of these are S breakfasts.


Pictured below: six chocolate waffles (e), six regular waffles (e), two loaves of sprouted grain bread (e).


We are often in a hurry in the mornings, so having these breakfasts already prepared means we can just grab what we need and take it with us, if need be. This way no one goes without breakfast and everyone is well nourished and happy!

To see recipes, click the links below. All of these recipes are in the cookbook, but these links go to other websites.

Trim Healthy Waffles (e)

Chocolate waffles (e)

Wafflized breakky sandwich (S)

Breakfast burritos (S)

Soft sprouted bread (e)

In the next few weeks, I will show you the lunches and dinners. I hope this has been helpful to you!

Planning a Trim Healthy Mama cooking day…and a free printable menu planner 


First of all, I am not affiliated with Trim Healthy Mama, or its founders Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison. I am just a loyal follower and a greatful fan. 

Have you heard of make ahead freezer meals? We are on a quest to make meal times easier and more simple at our home. I have always wanted to have a cooking day so I could make some meals ahead of time and freeze them. 

I decided to create a seven day meal planner so I could plan what meals we’d eat each week and then create a shopping list for each week as well. 

I am printing off four of these seven day planners, filling them out, and then buying the ingredients needed to make the meals. Here’s a little snapshot of what I’ve done so far:


I intend to have about a month’s worth of meals in my freezer when I’m finished cooking. The idea is to cook all day and have a whole month of foods to eat. In order to have a successful cooking day, you must plan ahead as much as possible. I want to make sure I have all the ingredients I need before the cooking day begins. 

You can find all the Trim Healthy Mama recipes in their cookbook, but you can also find tons of them on Pinterest or BrianaThomas.com.

You can download this meal planner as well. Just right click on the images below to save them to your device and print them. 


Happy cooking!

Trim Healthy Mama Cheeseburger Pie

cheeseburger-pie

Since my youngest daughter was born almost eleven months ago, I’ve been on a personal journey to get healthier and drop a little weight in the process. I was introduced to Trim Healthy Mama by a friend. I lost 50 pounds (30 of those were baby weight) and I can’t put into words how much better I’m feeling.

For the first time since high school, I can wear size 6 pants. It’s amazing.

I wanted to ease some of the pickier members of my family into the THM plan as well. My book and cookbook suggested “cheeseburger pie” as a good starting point for picky husbands 🙂

The recipe is in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook and is very easy and affordable to make.

Here is the cast of characters. Not pictured is the ground beef.

dsc_2386

And here is a list of what you need:

             This recipe feeds 6 to 8, but ingredients can be reduced to accommodate a smaller family.

Ingredients:
– 2 to 2.5 pounds ground beef or venison
– 3 teaspoons onion powder
– 1.5 teaspoons Mineral Salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– 12 ounces cheese of your choice, grated
– 2 large eggs
– 1/2 cup mayonnaise (can substitute Greek yogurt)
– 1/2 cup heavy cream

First, you brown and drain your meat. We used 80% ground beef.

dsc_2385

After draining the meat, add the salt, pepper, and onion salt.

dsc_2388

Spread the meat in a 9X13 baking dish and mix in half of the grated cheese.

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, mayonnaise and cream and pour it over the meat. Top the mixture with the rest of the cheese.

dsc_2389

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

Enjoy your healthy and tasty meal!
